How about Nala? Like from the Lion King? Or Kiara? She's the lioness in the Lion King II. *cough huge Lion King fan cough*

I think Zene is an awesome name!

Those ones are pretty cute so far. :3
When I'm strapped for names, I try looking at names for deities or mythological figures and see if there's anything that I would like or may match whatever it is I'm trying to name or at least give me a nudge in the right direction.

But since African names and the like are out of my area of expertise, I'm more with Greek/Roman/Norse myths, here's a list of african myhological figures on wikipedia that may help give you an idea.
